Hi there, all!
I'm trying to compile an international collection of false friends with English.
I already have a whole bunch of German examples from a German-speaking friend of mine, but would appreciate input from other teachers from all over the world.
Do me a favour - sit down and write me a list of the worst examples you hear in your classrooms. If possible, can you put them into 3 columns, namely Original word, False friend and foreign translation, Correct English word.
For example: aktuell; actual(tatsächlich); current

That would really be fantastic!
